Assembling a Network of Public Life-Science Data

There are hundreds of life science datasets freely available online containing a wealth of information. Unfortunately, most of this great potential remains unrealized, because the datasets are not integrated, poorly documented, curated to inconsistent standards, and left to decay after initial funding dries up. From this data, Data2Discovery is assembling a rich "knowledge network", plus adding computational tools enabling scientists to explore and evaluate possible drug therapies.
